Wisconsin Fly Fishing for Trout
For many years I have enjoyed fly fishing for trout on many Northern Wisconsin trout streams and rivers. Armed with plastic boxes chucked full of hooks covered with little tufts of fur and feathers, a flimsy graphite fly rod and a simple fly reel I have always felt the excitement and joy of the moment.
Just seeing the tailing swirls or circular rings left by rising trout makes me forget about all the worldy matters and turns my focus towards one of nature's finest jewels - wild trout. Time passes quickly as I place my wit and knowledge gained from past fly fishing experiences against the trout's natural instincts. Whether I win or loose doesn't really matter because I still have gained much from my brief encounters with one of God's wonderful little creatures. Each of these precious moments are etched forever in my mind and give me wonderful memories of the trout and my fly fishing friends, which I will always cherish.

Most of the content for this website is based on fly fishing for trout in Northern Wisconsin. Although, it would also apply to any of the freestone trout streams of central Wisconsin.
Northern Wisconsin freestone trout streams have an abundance of mayfly, stonefly, caddisflies and other aquatic insects that hatch throughout the Wisconsin trout fly fishing season.
